Siloam Springs

John Brown University is hosting its Centennial Homecoming Celebration this weekend. Events include a time capsule opening, car show and fireworks display. In honor of the milestone, we recently sat down with two of JBU's presidents to discuss the institution's history and future.

This coming Sunday will be the first Sunday Ivory Bill Brewing Company will be allowed to sell their beer to go. In July, The Siloam Springs City Board of Directors approved a change to an ordinance that prohibited breweries from selling their product for off-premise consumption on Sundays.


This year marks the charter of the American Legion by Congress in 1919. The historic Legion Post 29 in Siloam Springs is celebrating the centennial with flying colors.


Joe Woolbright, director of Ozark Ecological Restoration, in collaboration with John Brown University and the city of Siloam Springs, has installed a new bird watching habitat on Siloam Springs City Lake Park.  A formal dedication and public opening is planned later this summer.

About a year after breaking ground, Siloam Springs' Memorial Park will open to the public May 25. A ribbon cutting is scheduled for 10 a.m. and will be followed by three free concerts throughout the day. The new park includes an ampitheater, concession stand, water feature and a new home for the farmers market.
